Yield Giving announced a $250 million open call to fund impactful organizations focused on working with people and in places experiencing the greatest need in the United States: communities, individuals, and families with access to the fewest foundational resources and opportunities.
The Yield Giving Open Call, managed by Lever for Change, will award unrestricted gifts of $1 million to 250 community-led, community-focused organizations whose explicit purpose is to enable individuals and families to achieve substantive improvement in their well-being through foundational resources. This includes organizations providing access to health care, stable and affordable housing, education and job training, support for sustained employment, asset ownership, civic engagement, and other pathways.
The Open Call reflects a commitment to supporting organizations whose main purpose is advancing the voices and opportunities of individuals and families of meager or modest means, and groups who have met with discrimination or other systemic obstacles.
Community-led, community-focused nonprofit organizations in the United States and its territories are invited to apply. Organizations must have an annual operating budget of at least $1 million and no more than $5 million for at least two of the last four fiscal years to be eligible. Interested organizations must register by Friday, May 5, 2023.
